Any ability to get single variable value?

Is there any way to use the API to get a single variable value returned? I’m trying to figure out if I can use any type of calls to retrieve specific values (temp, wind speed, etc.) in my home automation system.

Hi @DTxAg, unfortunately there is no option to get specific values from the API. Instead it is designed to get a specific observation (or set of observations) that contain all values reported by either a device or station. Once you have fetched the observation, you can extract the specific value you need.

I assume you have read all the API documentation: ?

Ps. I moved this topic to the developers section.

Thanks, Peter. I did read the docs but was hoping I missed something.

If your home automation is HA or NodeRed you can query the data (or even listen for your UDP broadcasts locally) and pick the element(s) you want out of the payload pretty easily.

Control4, so trying to figure out if some existing driver might be able to get the data.

I haven’t seen a driver for Control4. I only know of the one for RTI. If you find someone that is willing to write one, I will help them.


I know I am late to the party but we have released driver for Control4. You can download it from here:
